NC23 Budget Trackbike

Post by CB1pod70 » Mon Jan 13, 2020 10:30 am

I been talked into starting a YouTube channel and so here is my next project - another NC23 (the original bike may be familiar to a few of you).
Don't go expecting lots of blingy parts as this is a basic, budget bike and I'm going to try and include a few how-to's for those that are just starting out.

Anyway, here is the link to the Intro and like all YouTuber's say, please like, comment & subscribe.....blah, blah, blah :grin:

I've subscribed!

I thought about doing something similar a while back but between lack of time and lack of enthusiasm I never did, but it's good to see the little 400's getting some love :grin:

good luck with it and if you need any help with anything (not quite sure what!) just give me a shout and if I can help in any way I will

Cheers Guys, I have seriously underestimated how long it takes to mess around with the camera to film stuff and the editing & uploading takes forever - I might just regret this but hope to upload a video a week.
The main problem of course is that I can only film Saturday or Sunday day time due to the light but I guess I can get on with the other bikes in the evenings....

PS
No promises on the good bit :lol:

You are going to have to be well organised and tidy. It is going to be a challenge in such a tight space, but not impossible.....I restored my old brit (1956 AJS) in about the same sort of space :-)


Good luck and enjoy the Project

I'm used to working in small spaces due to hoarding bikes.... Seems to be even less space when you need to allow for filming stuff too

In one of the videos, i think it was the first one, you said that the bike was your first one you went racing on and it holds a lot of sentimental value to you but if you change the frame does it still remain the same bike ?
It's not having what you want but wanting what you've got....Loud ,Proud and Modified ....

That's the stupid part about it - very little of the bike remains from when I first got it (the carbs, frame, swingarm, calipers, electrics & airbox) so yeah it really is a bit like Triggers broom and there will be even less original parts by the time I'm finished but then when has logic ever been involved with these bikes ;)
